Under the direction of Mathew Apgar, a Staged Reading of The Walworth Farce was held in early May. Mat and the cast did a fantastic job ‘turning the lights back on’ our stage and we’d like to thank all who attended!

CnG along with Feile, Inc. organized the return of Liz McNicholl’s Childrens’ Interactive Workshop, on Sunday May 30th. This free outdoor event was brought inside due to weather, but we made our rainy day one of music, sing-a-longs, instrument playing, dancing and laughter. Liz even had the kids counting in Irish as well as saying a few phrases – great fun for both kids and adults!

Jillian Polmin is currently running a six-week Actors Workshop for Middle and High School Students which concludes on July 14. For more information contact:
